Tribute To My Dad

A special dad is hard to find.

You, Dad, I’m keeping in my mind.

I wished you could have stayed forever,

But I will never forget you; oh, not ever.

If dreams weren’t dreams and dreams came true,

I wouldn’t be here; I’d be with you.

Distance is one thing that keeps us apart,

But, Dad, you will always remain in my heart.

A special smile, a special face,

A special someone I can’t replace,

I love you and I always will.

You filled a space that no one else could fulfill.

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we are having to change the way we are running. We would appreciate where possible to do funeral arrangements over the phone. We are aware this is not ideal, neither is it the way we wish to be operating. Understandably due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are adopting these methods to be as compliant as possible with government guidance. This will also apply to the manner in how we are conducting the funerals, we will ensure to do our utmost to remain highly respectful as usual, with as many of our traditions still in place.

For the safety of our staff and yourselves, we are adapting daily to the guidelines set by the government and local authorities.

For any queries or concerns please do contact any of our offices or general enquires on 01252 616431.
